Thoughts on Dimes Square area of LES? (Near Canal and Essex st intersection on border with Chinatown). It’s definitely gentrifying quickly. Good area for an apartment?

Depends on your interests/standards of living. Some apartments are pretty small, some are pretty squalid but there are some good restaurants, fun people, lots of energy. Will there be a new China chalet? Who knows

If you’re living with roommates they may not have 9 to 5s, might be kind of immersed in a art world that feels alien or like they spend most of their time as bohemian layabouts or like they’re chasing clout all the time. But that’s okay and they’ll probably be good friends

After getting an accepted offer my buyers agent informed me that there is an additional $595 administrative fee due to his brokerage for admin services like doc storage and office supplies that I am supposed to pay. We purchased a home last year with a different agent and company and did not have to pay this fee. Is this common practice for buyers agent to push their brokerage fees to their clients? Isn’t this why they are getting paid thousands of dollars in commissions? Any insight is helpful

Anybody with a good understanding of NYC real estate market? I’m single, early in my career and looking to buy a one bedroom/studio apartment. I can’t justify high rent price while not being to build up home equity. But it also baffles me that one unit can go for 300-400k. So my question to you is is this even a good investment? Is there appreciation & liquidity potential? I’m not looking to settle down, just replacing monthly rent with monthly mortgage & tax, and sell it when time is right
